This building has had to grow on me because before I got into the development spectator thing, I was just a casual observer of downtown and the building never impressed me. It looked like any building of that era (80s-90s), it just happened to be taller than anything else in LA. I still think it isn't remarkable but the crown is its saving grace. Its a beautiful crown thats almost regal in apperance (in a modern way). The way its lit up at night makes it a beacon--a center of focus for a city that is criticised for having no center. its not the greatest building but since its "ours", i'm always going to have an affection for it.
